“Le Grand Soufflet” - France

by Diatonic News
Le Grand Soufflet
3-13 oct 2018

“Le Grand Soufflet” is an international accordion festival. It has been taking place every year in October in the city of Rennes and other different cities of the Ille-et-Vilaine department (French Brittany) since 1996. It is now one of the most important festival dedicated to the instrument. About 15 000 people attend to the festival each year, in 30 to 40 venues, mainly about 120 people venues and about 5 venues around 500 people.
The purpose of the festival is to show the modernity and the diversity of accordion (and harmonica in modern style of music such as electronic, punk, rock, experimental... So we already invited some of the most important artists from all over the world representing different styles of music (Brasil, Canada, Argentina, Madagascar, Finland, etc…) but also young promising artists from France and other countries.

New Book: “Accordion Stories from the Heart” by Paul Ramunni - USA

by Rita Davidson Barnea
Angelo Paul RamunniAWW announces the publication of a fascinating new book about the accordion available on September 1, 2018. “Accordion Stories from the Heart: A Collection of Accordions from Around the World and Their Stories, Inspired by the Extraordinary People Who Played Them” (Accordion Stories Volume #1) by Angelo Paul Ramunni

Author Paul Ramunni shares: “The intention in creating this book was to make it a pleasurable, as well as an educational, viewing experience. But in the collecting of the many pictures, stories and in the production of the work itself, something quite unexpected happened.

As you read through the stories and see the various pictures of accordions, a composite mental picture may begin to immerge for you. It is the simple image of an accordionist offering their personal gift of music to the listener(s). This representative picture of how accordion players connected and created lasting relationships with other people is a hallmark of the accordion experience. They offered people their friendship in the form of a musically created greeting card, if you will, one that was personally built and delivered by the player.

As a grandparent these days, I am especially touched when my two beautiful grandsons create or build something themselves and offer it as a gift to me. They make that gift just for me and no one else, and so it becomes very special. As it turns out, that is how many accordion players from the past, and even today, create and deliver their musical gifts to people. It has the effect of bringing folks together and helping relationships grow deeper and stronger. In a sense, it can have the effect of building a bridge between people that, under ordinary circumstances, may have never occurred. It offers a starting point from which a mutually reciprocal relationship can develop and grow.

As of this writing, this is something our society seems to need in great quantities these days. Our country is deeply divided on many social and governing issues. But then again this is not something so new. This was the case often enough in the last 200 plus years of our American history, which coincidentally is at least how long the accordion has been around. I truly believe that during this period, the accordion helped many people come together through the tough times in their lives. Its musical message brought a sense of healing, happiness and unity. I also believe it can continue to do so as we move deeper into the 21st century. I hope we will let it continue to deliver its magic.”

You can order the book from the Amazon website.

Paul Ramunni grew up on Long Island, New York in the 1950’s and 60’s. He graduated from Fairfield University with a bachelor’s degree in Economics in 1970. He went on to earn a Masters Degree in Economics from Fordham University and eventually a second Masters Degree in Accounting from Long Island University in 1976.

In 1978 he became a Certified Public Accountant and started his own public accounting firm in 1982, of which he is still a partner.

It was in 2008 when Paul suddenly (and inexplicably) had the urge to start playing the accordion again. He had taken lessons and played in an accordion band from when he was 10 years old to age 17, but had not touched the accordion since those early days. Once the “bug to play” re-entered his life, he started hunting for old and collectible accordions.

He contacted the Cleveland Accordion Museum and purchased a large portion of their collection and continued to find more units at tag sales and other locations. He then set up “The New England Accordion Connection and Museum Co.” which is currently attached to his home in Canaan, Conn.

Accordion Babes 2019 Pin-Up Calendar and CD - USA

by Rita Davidson Barnea
Renée de la PradaThe Accordion Babes Calendar proves that the accordion is sexy with classy old-school pin-ups and an ecclectic CD. The 2019 Accordion Babes Pin-Up Calendar photo by Sean T Vallely.

What is the Accordion Babes Pin-Up Calendar about? Why does it exist? Excerpts from their website: The Accordion Babes Pin-Up Calendar is the brainchild of Renée de la Prada, who was working as a street performer, professional Irish musician and accordion repair technician in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2008 when the first Accordion Babes calendar was produced. Through her job at Smythe’s Accordion Center, and through her gigs with the celtic band Culann’s Hounds, Renée got to meet hundreds of accordionists who travelled through California.

One day, she was invited to do a photoshoot in the San Francisco Mission district by photographer Keith Brown. The resulting photos featured her accordion prominently, and they were sexy and raw and rebellious, very different from the accordion’s reputation as an instrument which is only for grandpas. That’s when the wheels started turning in her head. There was no place to publish these accordion photos, but there should be… wouldn’t it be great if someone published a pin-up calendar with sexy accordion photos? Wouldn’t it be an amazing vehicle for promoting indie artists, if it also came with a compilation CD?

Renée kept this idea in the back of her mind and handed out her business card to dozens of female accordion players whom she met at gigs and at Smythe’s Accordion Center. When she earned the interest of two phenomenal artists, Big Lou the Accordion Princess and Isabel Douglass, she decided to go for it. Who wouldn’t want to be in a calendar with their heroes? Smythe’s Accordion Center agreed to put up some money for an ad in the calendar… and that started a whole path of creating ad spaces, to pay for the print run with sponsorships.

The first editions of the calendar relied heavily on the go-getter nature of all the Accordion Babes, who had to promise to distribute 50 copies, and sell advertising to be participants. Today it’s a little different, the print run is funded with crowdsourcing and pre-sale orders.

Have a look at the link below and if you like it, please help share the link to the indiegogo campaign so enough Money can be raised to print the calendar.

You can also pre-order it here, or preview the other hot accordion photos.... about 300 pre-orders is all what is needed: https://igg.me/at/accordionbabes2019/x/9730983

Trekharmonika WandelWeekend - Netherlands

by Diatonic News
Trekharmonika WandelWeekend - Netherlands
TWW De Alde Faenen, en 5-7 oktober 2018

Begin oktober organiseren Mark Söhngen en Hilbert Post voor de 10e keer (!) een TrekharmonikaWandelWeekend. We gaan, zoals de naam al zegt, een weekendje trekharmonika spelen en wandelen, deze keer in het prachtige natuurgebied de Alde Faenen in hartje Friesland. Aankomst vrijdag vanaf 17.00 uur (diner), einde zondag 16.00 uur. Omdat het weekeinde dezelfde dag vol zat, een extra weekeinde gepland van 5-7 oktober 2018!

De workshop

Mark geeft de trekharmonikaworkshop. We kiezen een paar mooie, gevoelige, sensuele, vrolijke en swingende melodieën uit het rijke repertoire waaruit we als trekharmonikaspeler kunnen kiezen, van middeleeuwen via blues en balfolk tot popmuziek aan toe. En dan gaan we eens goed bekijken hoe het stuk in elkaar zit: struktuur, akkoordenschema, en hoe we dat het mooist kunnen spelen: vingerzetting, balgvoering, dynamiek, hoe krijg je er de swing in of laat je het juist heel droevig klinken?

De wandelingen
Hiilbert begeleidt 2 wandelingen van zo’n 2 uur, die zullen gaan door de prachtige natuurgebieden de Jan Durkspolder en door Reid om e Krite, een vogelrijk gebied. Het wandeltempo wordt afgestemd op de groep. Hilbert is een ervaren wandelaar en speelt ook trekharmonika. Bovendien is hij een fantastische kok en zorgt dus voor alle maaltijden.

23° Campionato Mondiale dell’Organetto di San Giovanni Rotondo - Italia

by Diatonic News
Pietro InfantinoUn pezzo del Vallo di Diano trionfa al 23° Campionato Mondiale dell’Organetto di San Giovanni Rotondo.

Pietro Infantino, 27enne di Montesano sulla Marcellana ha conquistato il 1° posto nella categoria senior con un ex aequo insieme a Manolo Del Sonno da Roma.

Un Festival ormai diventato consuetudine nella roccaforte pugliese che punta a riscoprire e valorizzare gli antichi suoni della tradizione: ben 200 i partecipanti e una giuria composta da 5 musicisti di fama mondiale arrivati anche dall’estero.

La prova è consistita nell’esecuzione di due brani a scelta libera.

Infantino suona l’organetto da quando aveva 10 anni, grazie alla passione per la musica trasmessa dai nonni. Nel 2014 ha vinto il Campionato Italiano di Organetto categoria Senior.

Negli anni si è esibito in vari eventi in giro per l’Italia e all’estero.

Cinq icônes du diatonique Européen

Comme les samuraï qui pratiquaient avec dévotion l’art de la guerre jusqu’à en devenir les maîtres incontestés, le groupe du même nom s’applique à pousser la musique dans ses retranchements. Inspirés par les guerriers japonais ancestraux, Riccardo Tesi, Kepa Junkera, Markku Lepistö, David Munelly et Simone Bottasso réinterprètent ce qu’est l’accordéon. Audacieux, ils sortent de la partition, proposent, expérimentent. Chacun avec son bagage, sa culture, ces cinq icônes du diatonique européen manient leurs instruments avec toujours plus d’agilité, subjuguant le public par leur art.

2018 The 'American Cajun, Blues & Zydeco Festival' - DE

by Diatonic News
2018 The 'American Cajun, Blues & Zydeco Festival'
will be on tour from October 22nd - November 4th 2018

2018 Grammy Nominee 'Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers' will perform at the Festival with his six-piece band. And Roddie Romero will be back. His performance with Yvette Landry and Beau Thomas in 2017 was so succesful that he'll return as 'Roddie Romero feat. Lee Allen Zeno and Jermaine Prejean'. Lee Allen Zeno is the famed bassplayer for Buckwheat Zydeco and Jermaine Prejean is Roddie's drummer in the 'Hub City All Stars'. Roddie is a three times Grammy Nominee. And Blues á Bébé is a tribute from well known Cajunfiddler Johannes Epremian to his Louisiana Cajunfiddler heros Dewey Balfay, Canray Fontenot and Dennis McGhee.

Since 2001 the festival is on the road and 2018 it will tour throughout Germany to bring authentic music from Louisiana to the fans and friends of Cajun, Blues and Zydeco. The festival honors these particular genres from Louisiana with artists from USA and Europe.

Over the last few years a new sound has been gaining momentum here in Europe. More and more bands have been visiting these shores bringing a new sound from over the atlantic ocean. This music is using familiar instruments like guitars, accordions and fiddles played in a way that is fresh and vibrant. Its home is in swamps and prairies of Southwest Louisiana but bands from over the seas are finding a warm welcome in clubs and festivals 3000 miles away from their roots. The music isn’t new of course, its traditions are centuries old but to many people here in Europe it comes like a breath of fresh air. With its driving beat, hearfelt emotions, and trance like melodies it strikes a chord with 21st century ears.

Workshop Swingend balfolk/Auke Eringa - Holland

by Diatonic News
Auke EringaDatum: zondag 4 november 2018.
Lesblokken: 11-12.30 uur; 13-14.30 uur en 15-16 uur.
Niveau: gevorderd, ritmisch uitdagend, enige kennis van akkoorden met rechts is wenselijk.
Stemming instrument: C/F

Inhoud: We gaan aan de gang met een mooi scottishe-achtig nummer van de Noorse componiste Ingunn Bjørgo: ‘Askerladd på Aveie’. De meeste balfolkmuziek bestaat uit een A-deel en een B-deel (beide van 8-maten) met een niet te moeilijke melodie die snel in je hoofd blijft zitten. Gelukkig geeft juist die eenvoud van structuur kansen om de muziek interessanter en uitdagender te maken. In deze workshop behandelt Auke vijf krachtige manieren om dat te doen: swingende ritmische accenten leggen met akkoorden in de rechterhand; een improvisatie spelen (waar je geen conservatoriumopleiding voor nodig hebt); verschuivingen in de harmonische horizon aanbrengen door middel van akkoordsubstituties; tweede en derde stemmen toevoegen; en vooral: adempauzes inbouwen. We zullen onze tijd hard nodig hebben om al deze aspecten toe te passen en daarom beperken we ons op deze dag tot één melodie.

Docent: Auke Eringa speelt en doceert trekharmonica, maar ook onder meer accordeon, banjo, mondharmonica, ukelele en bouzouki. Hij is goed thuis in de balkfolk, klezmer, chansons, kinderliedjes en popliedjes. Auke treedt vaak op met de band Sidaro (klezmer- en gypsymuziek) op feesten en evenementen. Met duo de Akoestini’s brengt hij vrolijke liedjesprogramma’s voor volwassenen en kinderen.

Beginnerscursus trekharmonica spelen/Jos Lambregts - Holland

by Diatonic News
Jos LambregtsData: maandag 5 en 19 november, 3 december 2018, 14 en 28 januari, 11 februari 2019 (6 lessen).
Tijd: 19-21 uur.
Niveau: beginners.
Stemming instrument: C/F

nhoud: Wilt u graag trekharmonica leren spelen? In deze beginnerscursus van zes lessen leert u uw instrument kennen en eenvoudige melodieën spelen. U leert een melodie spelen op gehoor en met behulp van bladmuziek. U hebt voor dit instrument geen muzikale kennis of ervaring nodig en ook zonder speciaal talent speelt u al snel een deuntje. Toch vraagt ook de trekharmonica doorzettingsvermogen en tijd. Vooral de coördinatie van de rechterhand, die een melodie speelt, en de linkerhand, die de ritmebox bedient, is niet voor iedereen gemakkelijk.

Docent: Jos Lambregts is een enthousiaste trekharmonicaspeelster die van meerdere genres houdt, waaronder Nederlands, Frans en Italiaans. Ze speelt al lange tijd mee met Gezelschap Goet ende Fyn. Bij Jos komt speelplezier op de eerste plaats.

CAROLINE KEANE & FIONA BLACK TRIO
Le charme de l’accordéon d’Irlande et d’Ecosse

Tout commence à l’université de Limerick, Irlande. Caroline Keane, joueuse de concertina issue des campagnes irlandaises, et Fiona Black, accordéoniste originaire des Highlands, se lient d’une amitié profonde qui se transforme en symbiose artistique. Viscéralement attachées à la musique, elles déversent leurs nobles émotions dans des mélodies touchantes et sensibles. Avec le guitariste Marty Barry, le trio créatif importe en Ille-et-Vilaine les traditions musicales de ses contrées natives

Stevan Vincendeau & Willy Pichard DUO - PARCE/FR

by Diatonic News
Stevan Vincendeau & Willy Pichard DUO
Duo vielle à roue et accordéon

Duo à la technique irréprochable, Stevan Vincendeau et Willy Pichard sont en parfaite symbiose. Le bourdonnement furieux de la vielle se frotte au soufflet de l’accordéon pendant que les mélodies rivalisent de dextérité. Valses entêtantes, mélodies inspirées et improvisations renversantes s’enchaînent avec splendeur et fluidité, loin des poncifs de la musique bretonne qui les a nourris. Les deux compères incarnent ici à merveille une tradition revigorée que l’on a toujours plaisir à entendre au Grand Soufflet

Tipica Francesa
SOIREE DE CLOTURE : KOSMO PILOT / LA TIPICA FRANCESA / BITORI
13/10/2018 - 20:00 à 23:00
Espace Beausoleil
Allée de la mine - 35131 PONT PEAN

Merengue de Santo-Domingo, cumbia de Colombie ou bomba de Puerto-Rico... Tout ce qui se bat et se danse chaloupé forme le répertoire brûlant de la Tipica Francesa. Ces quatre compères ont décidé de s’attaquer à la face la plus joyeuse de l’édifice musical latino-caribéen et le résultat s’écoute nécessairement sourire aux lèvres ! Chanté en espagnol et sur fond d’accordéon, de contrebasse et de percussions, voici un bal aux allures de carnaval, un instant de liesses propre aux traditions des pays ensoleillés... une injonction à déhancher les corps, à faire claquer les talons et tourbillonner les jupes !

LANKUM / THE CELTIC SOCIAL CLUB - France

by Diatonic News
Lankum
05/10/2018 - 20:30 à 23:00
Rennes - Chapiteau
Parc du Thabor - 35000 RENNES

Au son du uilleann pipe, du concertina ou de l’accordéon, du violon et de la guitare, Lankum joue habilement avec une tradition folk dublinoise vieille de 300 ans. Le sourire aux lèvres et les pieds battant furieusement la mesure, les quatre musiciens passent avec fluidité d’airs dansants aux ballades mélancoliques auxquelles les harmonies de voix confèrent une puissance impressionnante. Inspirés par The Dubliners, The Watersons, ou les Pogues pour l’énergie, Lankum rend hommage à de célèbres travellers irlandais, insufflant une bonne dose de modernité dans la tradition.

Ramiro Boero presenta “Acontece” / Ciclo Bandoneomanía - Argentina

Ramiro Boero presenta “Acontece” / Ciclo Bandoneomanía - Argentina
Ramiro Boero (Bandoneón)

Guest musicians:
Cristian Asato (Piano)
Pablo Motta (Double bass)

"Acontece" is a tango record, but it is also a declaration of my love for bandoneon and Brazilian music. As a child, Ramiro Boero lived his life between Buenos Aires and Curitiba. This recording is a vital synthesis: it includes 10 solo bandoneon versions of compositions by Gismonti, Cartola, Jobim, Camargo Mariano, among others.

Boero is part in typical tango orchestras and groups and is the author of "God Hoy", the piece that closes the disc, dedicated to Amilton Godoy of the Zimbo Trio.
